Overview

Visit Atomic bomb dome and try Hiroshima's local specialty on Miyajima Shrine island.
First, we take a local train and ferry to Miyajima island and have lunch. In the afternoon, we go back to downtown Hiroshima and visit atomic bomb dome, ground zero, some monuments in the peace park and peace museum. I am flexible to customize my tour based on your request. Please feel free to contact me.

What to Expect

Hiroshima is world famous for the atomic bomb dome but you can't miss Miyajima!
Explore Miyajima shrine island, Japan's top 3 most scenic location. You will be greeted by wild deer there. 800 year-old Itsukushima shrine and its giant gate are very unique ones standing in the bay.
What you can enjoy on the island is not only seeing but also eating. Why don't you try Hiroshima's local specialty, Okonomi-yaki? Egg, cabbage, pork, bean sprouts are cooked on a hot iron plate and put together like a layered pancake (please see my phogo gallary).
The other destination is the atomic bomb dome and peace museum. Hiroshima is the first city that suffered from the atomic bombing. Seeing and knowing what happened in Hiroshima gives us a good chance to think about our future, to share one world with love and peace.

“ Thank you for giving us wonderful memories of Hiroshima! ”

Right from the very beginning when I contacted Keiko regarding the attractions I wanted to visit and the activities I wanted to see, Keiko patiently answered every question I had and offered valuable advice. When she brought us to the historical attractions such as the A-dome site, Kintaikyo Bridge and the Itsukushima Shrine, she always gave interestingly detailed information and made sure we had time to take lovely photos. Thank you so much for welcoming us warmly to Hiroshima and letting us feel at home, away from home! We really enjoyed these 4 days with you :D Eileen Singapore

Keiko:

Hi Eileen, Thank you for your message! I really enjoyed those 4 days with you, too. You two are charming and fun people to attend and I enjoyed our conversation, taking lots of pictures and learning how to take lovely pictures. Thank you again and I hope we will stay in touch!!

“ We were able to know where the atomic bomb dropped, the remnants of the building, the museum is full of details wherein 1 touched me the most - the little boy who died while riding the bike. ”

She was an interesting, active, polite & eloquent tour guide. I will recommend Triple Lights to my family & friends who will need a tour guide in their journey to discover more of Japan.

Keiko:

Thank you, Vienna! We had a really great time in Hiroshima. This tour visits an educational peace park and a fun Miyajima island, which I think has a good balance. Glad to hear you liked it! May peace prevail in the whole world.

“ An amazingly knowledgeable lady with a beautiful personality ”

Keiko was amazingly knowledgeable right from the start. She connected straight away with our 12 year old son. Her guidance and knowledge of the history, culture and sights was faultless. We had a beautiful day on Miyajima- I would love to have her guide our whole trip in Japan.

Keiko:

Hello Jodi, Thank you for your review! I love kids and I really enjoyed everything he asked and talked to me. We talked a lot and laughed a lot together, which I believe will be a small piece of a peaceful world. Typhoon is approaching. Please stay safe and enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan!

“ Superb and charming guide ”

Keiko was my guide in Miyajima and Hiroshima over 2 days. I had initially cancelled the week before as my costs travelling round Japan were mounting. I eventually decided to ask Keiko to be my guide again and it was the best decision. Keiko is a superb guide. She does her job well. She's full if knowledge, she navigates the city well and is very well organised. This is what one expects and she delivers. She guided me in Miyajima and I had what has been a standout experience. It was just magical. The Hiroshima your was also superb. The walk around the peace park was very moving and Keiko shared a lot of information that really brought it to life. The walk around the gardens was also very very good. What Keiko bribgs to being such a good guide is her genuine excitement about travel ... read more

Keiko:

“ Keiko is a lovely and very helpful guide. ”

I was very lucky to have such a kind and knowledge guide, she was very helpful in explaining everything in detail, her English iwas perfect, she assisted me in taking as many pictures as I wished, the day was raining, nevertheless she made every effort that I don’t get wet. At the end of the tour, she took me to the railway station and made sure that I don’t miss my train back to Tokyo. I consider Keiko to be the perfect asset for Triplights.

Keiko:

Thank you for your warm message, Hasan. It was really a great day for me, too. We talked a lot and exchanged our opinions a lot, which I enjoyed very much. And I am sure this will be a small piece of a better world. May peace prevail all over the world!
